Good paint job in tucson?

I'm looking for a decent place to get a good paint job at a relatively cheap price in Tucson. Can anyone recommend a place or person?

You buy cheap, you buy twice. Don't skimp on a paint job, simply put, because when they make an error, you will have to live with seeing it every time you look at your car. And once you notice the error(s), then you will wish you spent the extra money to be impressed every time you look at your car. Most people on here just think that having your car all one color and glossy means its "clean" but, sadly enough, most of their cars look hideous to anyone who knows what their looking at. With that said, if you are willing to save, and go to a shop that will make sure it gets done proper, go to PhotoFinish (http://www.photofinishoftucson.com/contact.html) or Family Auto Body (http://familyautobody.com/). To the best of my knowledge, those are the only two shops that i have seen good work come from in this town (not saying there are not others). If you do choose to go to one of them, shoot me a PM with some pics after its done! I'd love to see the finished product.

You get what you pay for. I've spent that much in materials alone when doing a quality paint job.

A place to get a great paint job in Tucson

I definitely hope this helps somebody like it has helped my wife and I. We had major paint & auto body work done our my 1998 Dodge Neon after a bad collision by:

Meyer's Creative Concepts Paint & Body
2550 E Grant Rd Tucson, AZ 85716
(520) 326-2882
azcreativeconcepts.com
Hours: 7:30 am – 5:00 pm .

We were 100% skeptical at first, because we don't trust anybody we don't know with our life in their hands! On the day, we picked up our car it looked better than it did when it was bought from the dealership and drove perfectly. It was done on our schedule in which they only had less than 3 days I know it was a lot to ask, but it was done...Ask for Mike the owner he is a great guy and will go through and explain everything to you.

You can also find our personal testimonial on their website regarding our Neon!!!
